About Your Congress

ESC Acute CardioVascular Care 2025, Florence, from 14 to 15 March

ESC Acute CardioVascular Care is the annual congress of the Association for Acute CardioVascular Care.

ESC Acute CardioVascular Care is the annual congress of the Association for Acute CardioVascular Care.

Renowned to attract professionals from all disciplines with a common interest in acute and critical care of cardiovascular disease, this congress serves as a platform for exchanging knowledge and sharing state-of-the-art insights, gaining new perspectives, and creating important synergies within the ACVC community.

We sincerely hope that you will join us in Florence next spring!

The entire spectrum of acute cardiac care

The 2025 edition will feature an even more interactive Scientific Programme, covering a variety of topics such as cardiogenic shock, haemodynamic and temporary mechanical circulatory support, pulmonary embolism, acute coronary syndromes, antithrombotic therapies, acute heart failure, use of biomarkers, and digital health. Expect to see passionate lectures, gaming sessions, an open stage with intense debates, educational workshops, and a social networking event open to all congress delegates. 


Updates for lifelong learning and professional development

The Association for Acute CardioVascular Care (ACVC) strongly believes in the education of healthcare professionals as part of lifelong learning but also includes those who are early in their careers.

The educational element of this congress is key, as it aims to help increase the quality in acute cardiovascular care, ultimately making a difference in the lives of patients worldwide. Your presence will play a crucial role in demonstrating established values in acute cardiovascular care.

Education is a key mission of the Association for Acute CardioVascular Care – forming one of the main pillars of the ESC.
